West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the display of Jamal Baptiste against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League tonight.
David Moyes selected five academy products for tonight’s Europa League Group H clash with the Croatian outfit.
The future really is very bright at the London Stadium.
West Ham have some truly incredible young talents coming through the ranks. None more so than Jamal Baptiste.
The 18-year-old made his senior debut for West Ham in the FA Cup last year.
And Baptiste was given his first start of the season for the senior team tonight at home against Dinamo Zagreb.
The youngster played at the heart of the Hammers’ defence alongside fellow academy players Aji Alese, Harrison Ashby and Emmanuel Longelo.
Sonny Perkins in was the other under-23 player to start tonight and all five of them did themselves proud.
Baptiste was a real stand-out though.
The London-born teenager has so much composure and coolness in possession for someone so young.
If he continues to work hard and applies himself properly, the sky will be the limit for Baptiste.
